Got chocolate lab 3 weeks ago, about 6 mo.old. Took him to vet last week to get HIM fixed and shots
This week he has kennel cough took him to the vet again all I got was antibiotics.
The poor guy sounds like a cat coughing up a hair ball.
Any ideas how to help and sooth his cough ??????????

First off very sorry to hear for the pup as well as yourself!

Please keep him isolated because as the name suggests "kennel" where it often originates with canines in confined areas such as kennels, it will spread.

Recovery of AKA tracheobronchitis or Bordetella,

-Isolation from other canines
-If he has to go outdoors-see above- use a harness instead of a collar to not restrict the trachea.
-And of course if the symptoms worsen he may be heading towards pneumonia, in that case need attention again ASAP from your Vet.
-Make sure the area/his living area is free from dusts and other air contaminants
-Antibiotics are not always suggested but moreso anti-inflammatory drugs are to help the body stop restrciting the bronchial system. You may want to ask your Vet about that.
-Make sure he is eating and especially drinking water.

Wishing a speedy recovery!

Take him to an actual animal hospital, not your local vet. My dog had kennel cough when I got him and it turned worse after going to the vet. Took him to an animal hospital and they put him on a ventilation system and he completely recovered in a week.

Yes, it cost more to take him to an animal hospital, but it's so worth it in the end. He's now 8 years old and going strong.

Good luck to you and I wish you and him the best.

Chocolate Lab??? Ohhhhh!!! (heart melt)...I LOVE my babygirl chocolate Lab!!!!...she came to us with kennel cough also at about 2 months old...actually did everything I would have done for my kids with any type of upper respiratory illness (along with the Vets recommendations and medicine)...ran a HOT shower while sitting on the floor of my bathroom with her, honey and lemon in a tea is always helpful, air purifiers helped, and LOTS and LOTS of cuddling hugs!!!! (Crazy, I know...but it WORKED!!) She's my boys best friend, and I would have it NO other way...hope your "child" gets better soon!!! :-) Think I saw a chicken soup suggestion...go with it!!! :-)

Thanks again

This why I keep coming back here.
There are many good, honest and caring people in the world and that proves the world does have hope !
Put a vaporizer next to the dog , he's been sleeping like a baby 2 hours now.
My 7 year old daughter named him Indiana Jones " Indy"
Thanks again
